Rosemary Pot Roast with Veggies and Tri-Color Potatoes



This yummy dinner was husband and kiddo approved- and it’s super simple to make.  Score!!

Without a doubt, my favorite kitchen tool is my trusty crock-pot.  I use it all the time to make delicious dinners for the family and I rarely ever have a complaint about the finished product.

I love my Rosemary Pot Roast recipe because it fulfills my husband’s need for meat and potatoes, but puts a great twist on an old favorite.

Fresh rosemary and thyme truly bring the flavors of this dish to the next level and the tri-color potatoes are a fun addition.  Who doesn’t love eating a purple potato?

Here’s how to do it:

The Ingredients:

  • 2-3 lb chuck roast
  • 2 large carrots- cut into 2″ pieces (or you can use pre-peeled baby carrots)
  • 2 onions, quartered
  • 5-6 tri-colored potatoes, quartered
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • olive oil
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • 2 tsp fresh rosemary
  • 2 tsp fresh thyme

The Directions:

  1. Season the roast with salt and pepper on all sides.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the quartered onions and carrots to the skillet and brown slightly.  Drain and add to crock pot.
  4. Add quartered potatoes to the veggies in the crock pot.
  5. Using the same skillet, sear the roast on all sides- about one minute on each side.  Drain and add to crock pot.
  6. Add beef broth to crock pot.  Top roast with fresh rosemary and fresh thyme.
  7. Cook on high for 4 hours, medium for 6 hours or low for 8 hours.  Roast is done when cooked through and veggies are tender.


Hope you enjoy!!

  1. This looks so delicious! (and quite pretty, too!) My hubby loves a good meat and potatoes meal, too, so I know this is going on my “to-make” list. 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up with “Try a New Recipe Tuesday.” I hope you will be able to join us again next week. Many blessings, Lisa

  2. This sounds really yummy! I’ve been looking for a good roast recipe for a while now. When I make roasts its always a huge fail and they are always like leather. I am def gonna give this one a try. Thanks!

  3. Thanks for the great recipe. I will have to try this one. The whole family loves roast and potatoes but this recipe has a few ingredients I have not thought of using.
